to do so I did as follows

 

open a console and logged in as root

 

su -

 

then downloaded two Fedora 13 release files needed for the next step

 

wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/13/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-notes-13-3.fc13.noarch.rpm

and

 

wget ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/Linux/distributions/fedora/linux/releases/13/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-13-1.noarch.rpm

 

then

 

rpm -Uvh fedora-release-notes-13-3.fc13.noarch.rpm fedora-release-13-1.noarch.rpm

once done

 

do

 

yum clean all

yum update

 

this takes a while, i had 1130 packages to update

actually no, apart from Firefox looking different, it feels much the same as it did probably because I had F12 totally up to date, or maybe i just havn't explored enough yet

I'm guessing a totally-up-to-date v12 is pretty identical to a "just released v13"!

 

Was wondering if there's anything more changed with udev, disk IDs, boot loader (Ubuntu now uses grub2), etc.

It seems that is 'the deal' when it comes to Fedora. I used it quite extensively a few years ago -- you got so many package upgrades you always knew you were on the bleeding edge, but that also meant you didn't get nice packages of new features when a new release came about. Admittedly, I haven't used it extensively for some time.

Hello guys, how are you all doing ?

 

Anyway, I upgraded to Fedora 13 from 12 but instead of using yum I actually made use of a Fedora tool called preupgrade. It is very easy to use,

 

# yum update
# yum install preupgrade python-urlgrabber
# preupgrade

 

You will get a gui (cli version available), it downloads the required files, asks you to reboot, then you install from anaconda. Maybe worth a try.

It seems that you [administrator] downloaded the installation and update files for Fedora 13 and proceeded from there.

 

I, OTOH, used an installation DVD, so I can't follow your steps.

 

It seems that, generally, F13 is working on my notebook, but I cannot update it, either using the yum update command, or the option presented to me by the system to download and install some 500 or more updates, patches, etc., because of some missing GPG key in /etc.

 

The error message is as follows:

 

.............. GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-13-i386

 

On some forum I got the following suggestion to try:

 

.............. rpm --import etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-13-i386

 

That failed too.

 

If anyone can help me I would be grateful. Besides posting a reply, could you send an email to me at:

 

Fraunt Hall - fraunthall@gmail.com

 

That way I will be sure to get it. thanks everyone.

There's no reason why you can't - if you have used YUM since installing then your config files will still point at the YUM repos.

 

.............. rpm --import etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-13-i386

 

That failed too.

the path needs to be absolute - you're missing a preceding "/":

rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-13-i386

Try that.

Post it here, read it here. If you want email notifications of responses to your post, set that option in your control panel, then the forum will email you accordingly.
